It is undeniable that once separated from the head, hair immediately changes from something defining and beautiful to something ugly and unpleasant; the Crystallized Hair project hopes to change this view. It takes such discarded bio-materials and turns it into stunning patterns by way of the traditional kaleidoscope. Of course, there is nothing traditional about Crystallized Hair.

Created by Dan Keeffe in joint effort with Amy Webster, Milly Bruce and Sam Part, the Crystallized Hair project is quite unusual. Although the process is not revealed, it looks quite complicated. Transforming the locks of hair into nearly powdered forms is pretty impressive. Then placing them into the kaleidoscope to create such familiar yet unfamiliar template most likely took a lot of patience. By doing so, they were able to contextualize the crystals.
